From the very beginnings of Forest County in 1885, the Crandon area has offered its residents, and visitors to the area, a unique sense of place and a colorful cast of characters.  It is our intention to highlight these individuals and their stories as we work to preserve and promote our shared past.

Our umbrella organization, the Forest County Historical and Genealogical Society, is a nonprofit organization founded in 1973 to promote interest in Forest County’s history and archival materials.
